Filmmaker Lounge 5: Hear From the Filmmakers

Grab your lunch and join us in the filmmaker lounge for a candid conversation between festival directors & programmers, with filmmakers bringing the questions.

This week, we’ll hear directly from the filmmakers about their experience in the virtual landscape. Join Ben Hyland (Talk Radio), Jacqueline Pereda (Generation Por Que?) and Maya Albanese (Freeze), all of whom have short films playing the circuit this year. Register and submit your questions for them in advance! Register here.

As all of us navigate the future of the festival circuit, we’re finding ourselves with more questions than answers. Festivals and filmmakers are pivoting in various directions in response to different circumstances with varying degrees of success. As we move forward, FFA and our member festivals, and Festival Formula, all believe that communication and transparency are critical to the sustainability of the film festival industry.
